THE SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY BEHIND
Why Remove Carbon?
Carbon removal is a critical necessity in the fight against climate change. Despite global efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the historical and ongoing release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and oceans continues to drive temperature rise and environmental disruptions. To avoid the most catastrophic impacts of climate change, we must address the excess CO2 already present in the atmosphere and surface ocean waters. Essentially, we must reverse emissions. Carbon removal technologies offer a promising solution to actively remove CO2 from the air and oceans, helping to restore the Earth’s delicate balance and create a sustainable future for generations to come.
Harnessing Nature's Power
At Pull To Refresh, we have developed an innovative carbon removal solution that combines cutting-edge technology with nature’s powerful processes. Using solar-powered, unmanned vessels, we gather invasive Sargassum seaweed and sink it in the deep sea, removing carbon from the short-term carbon cycle for over 1000 years.
Scalable, Durable, Efficient
Pull To Refresh’s carbon removal solution is highly scalable due to its deployment in the open ocean, which offers abundant space for expansion. This approach is both inexpensive and energy-efficient, utilizing solar power and the natural process of photosynthesis to minimize costs and environmental impact.
The carbon is stored for over 1000 years thanks to the deep-sea environment’s cold temperatures, high pressure, and slow-moving horizontal currents. This ensures long-term sequestration.
